28 gauge argentium wire

what does one do with wire that small?
i ordered it accidentally, thinking i could make earring wires with it.
no way, jose.

Oops! I use 20 gauge argentium for my earwires and 18 gauge for jump rings. Have you ever tried weaving, Viking Knit or crocheted wire? Something like that might work in 28 gauge.

wendy, you answered my next question (what size SHOULD i have gotten?) -many thanks! i suppose i could use the 28g as decorative binding wire, cold-connection style, too...

Could you use it for beading? Although I know you hate the tediousness of beading, it might add a new something . . .

it's like a hair's width! it would get kinky if i made a necklace with it! i think i could knit with it (don't worry, i won't!)....
